HARRISBURG (CBS) — Two former Penn State administrators charged with perjury in the Jerry Sandusky scandal now say they want to be tried separately.

Then athletic-director Timothy Curley and former Penn State Vice-President Gary Schultz are charged with lying to a grand jury about what they knew, and with failing to report suspected child abuse.

Up until now, virtually all proceedings in the case against the two men have been linked, and the judge has set their trial to start in January. But now lawyers for Schultz and Curley have asked that the two men be tried separately.

Meanwhile, a judge has set October 9th as the date Jerry Sandusky will be sentenced. Read related story.

Sandusky has been in jail since he was convicted in June on 45 counts of sex abuse involving 10 boys.
